Show #61: Seniors and Internet Dating

Show #61: Seniors and Internet Dating

Although it may come as some surprise to young folks, it’s a fact that many senior adults and baby boomers are looking for love and companionship.  There are many ways to meet someone.  A coffee shop, a farmers market, a book signing, or as Heather suggests, even Trader Joe’s at 8pm on a Sunday night.  One of the growing ways for senior adults and baby boomers to meet potential dates is through internet dating websites.  We discuss how people use internet dating websites and even hear several personal stories from David and a few of our callers about their experiences.  If you’ve ever been interested or curious about internet dating, tune in!
